Community forum on Alzheimer's disease to be held at the PACC

Area residents are invited to take part in a community forum on Alzheimer's disease and other dementias at the Perham Area Community Center on Jan. 23 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The forum will provide an opportunity for residents of all ages to come together to ask questions about the disease, share personal experiences, learn about available resources, and discover volunteer opportunities to support families affected by the disease.

"Alzheimer's disease impacts over 94,000 Minnesotans," said Kendra Lund, Program Manager for the Alzheimer's Association covering North-West Minnesota. "Our goal is to gain insight from the community about how to better serve people living with this disease, and their caregivers."

The Alzheimer's Association believes no individual or family should navigate the challenges of Alzheimer's disease alone. Community forums hosted by the Association bring together families affected by the disease with dedicated staff and volunteers to open conversation in an effort to bolster resources, programs and services to support families in their communities.
